About

Rowbike was invented by our good friend Scott Olson, the man who created Rollerblades. In 2014, Scott sold us the worldwide rights to RowBike and our new company, RowBike, Inc., was formed to build and market this awesome product.  Our team is using this Kickstarter to raise funding to allow us to start manufacturing.

One beautiful day, Scott was on a rowing machine and wished he could be outside, having fun, and getting the same results. In a stroke of genius, the Rowbike was born.   

Our product combines the fitness benefits of rowing, with the fun and excitement of being outside and on the move.

Rowbike is an exercise machine that provides a total body workout with the speed and excitement of a bicycle, inline skates, or downhill skis. It’s a land-based rowing machine that will take you where you want to go - and with a Rowbike, you will never be bored while working out again. 

Plus, the fitness benefits are great - industry experts have found that a Rowbike can burn 50% more calories than a normal bike.

For decades, physiologists from around the world have agreed that rowing is one of the top three exercises you can do along with cross-country skiing and swimming. Riding on a Rowbike gives you a total body, zero impact workout that provides real results and an exciting ride.

This machine puts no stress on your knees and has helped one of our founders fully recover from what could have been a life changing and terrible car accident. 

Its addicting, fun, and easy to ride. Rain or shine, summer or winter, indoors and outdoors. You can take it up hills and down hills and its easy to turn.

We know what this product can do for people, and we want to do it right.

We want to make it clear that a small number of people viewing this post might recognize the Rowbike.  It was released to the market in the 90's in a more rudimentary form and on a limited scale. Our team has worked with the inventor to make the Rowbike product even better.  Our design now has major improvements including a gear-less internal hub system.

Currently, we have no inventory and require funding. This Kickstarter campaign is the essential step to allow us to manufacture and market our first wave of inventory.

Our design is complete and we have partnered with one of the largest world class bike manufacturing companies on the planet and they are standing by, waiting for our team to order inventory.   This group can produce an extremely high quality product.

We’re talking with distributors from around the world, and this group can  ensure you get your product on time. 

To have these bikes ready to try, we need your help in creating an inventory. 

To move to the next stage requires the capital for manufacturing. Every dollar raised gives us the chance to build these bikes and make them a reality.

If you help us reach our goal of $55,000, we can guarantee these bikes hit the pavement.

We have some pretty exciting prizes to thank all of our donors, and we are excited to commercialize our Rowbikes on the market.

Thanks Kickstarter, we hope you'll join us.

Risks and challenges

You may be wondering, how we can ensure you will get your rewards and how can you be certain our team will succeed?

We have a team of highly experienced business professionals including combined executive experience of over 50 years, along with fitness expertise, manufacturing experience, and bike product expertise.

There is a chance manufacturing could be delayed by a month or so. This is why some of the expected dates for our rewards are many months out. We may be able to get them to you sooner, but our team is very confident we will get you our products if the campaign is successful.
